(Texans Care for Children)  A new report shows that funding for Texas Early Childhood Intervention (ECI) for babies and toddlers with disabilities and developmental delays has fallen from $484 per child in 2012 to $412 in 2018, a decline of nearly 15 percent. The report by the nonprofit organization Texans Care for Children follows a recent request from state officials to the Legislature to increase ECI funding in 2019 in order to address the unmet need and closure of multiple organizations providing ECI services.
